Turn to 1JO 5:19

REV 12:9And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;”

REV 20:3and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed;”

REV 20:7-8a “And when the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth,”

Doctrine of Enemyship.

Alienation to be well acquainted with someone and not like them at all.

Point 2. There is Both Personal and Historical Enemyship.

An example of personal enemyship existed between Esau and Jacob; an example of historical enemyship exists between the Arabs and the Jews.

Point 3. The Importance of Understanding Angelic Enmity.

Satan and fallen angels are the enemies of the believer, 1TI 5:14-15; 1PE 5:8.

1PE 5:8Be stabilized, be on the alert, your enemy the Devil, prowls about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.”

Satan and the kingdom of darkness know how to wear down the saints, distract them and tire them out, until emotion supersedes thought.

The reversionist, though used by Satan, is the enemy of both Satan and the advancing believer.

“All warfare is based on deception.”

One of Satans most successful tactics is to defeat the enemy without even fighting.

EPH 6:11Hold your ground against the strategies of the devil.”

EPH 6:13Hold your ground in the day that evil attacks you.”

JAM 4:7Submit therefore to God [execute the PPOG]. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

1PE 5:9But resist the devil by being firm in your doctrine.”

Sun Tzu “If you are near the enemy, make him believe you are far from him. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near.”

To fight and conquer all your battles is not the ultimate victory; the ultimate victory consists in breaking the enemys resistance without even fighting.

If your enemy makes you believe that he is not your enemy or that he does not exist, then he already has a tremendous advantage over you.

be of a sober spirit” being self-disciplined and being organized.

Angelic enemyship is designed to infiltrate your soul with deception, which is demonization of the soul and personality of the bel or unbel living in the cosmic system.
